4. You and your family are driving through an apple orchard. You notice that the trees in the orchard have both red and yellow ripened apples on the same tree. How is this possible? Explain the process.

This is a possible scenario because plants have the ability to cross-pollinate. Cross pollination is the process in which a flower gets pollinated with pollen from another kind of flower of the same species. Insects, wind, and human intervention can be contributing factors to such phenomenon and it is very common in the farming industry to produce viable produces for consumption.

1. How do your skeleton and muscular system work together, 2. What type of muscle tissue would you find in the heart? blood vessels? toes?

The answer to your first question involves a connection between your actions and your brain. Your bones and muscles work together through a series of impulses and signals communicated between the brain and skeletal muscles. In order to move, the nervous system then sends signals a skeletal muscle to contract. When the muscle contracts, this movement causes the attached bone to follow.

And as for your second question, 
The muscle tissue in your heart is cardiac, the muscle tissue in your blood vessels is smooth, and the muscle tissue in your toes is skeletal. 

I hope this helps you, have a nice day!

Sort the phrases into the appropriate bins depending on which type of postsynaptic potential they describe. If a phrase describes both types of potentials, drag it to the "both" bin.

Excitatory postsynaptic possibilities (EPSPs) are excitatory in light of the fact that they make the postsynaptic neuron more prone to produce an activity potential by depolarizing the layer (making the film potential less negative) and conveying the layer potential more like an edge. This is regularly expert by opening ligand-gated Na+ diverts in the postsynaptic layer, which enables Na+ particles to enter the cell. 
Interestingly, inhibitory postsynaptic possibilities (IPSPs) make it more troublesome for the postsynaptic neuron to create an activity potential by hyperpolarizing the layer (making the film potential more negative) and moving the film potential more distant from the limit. This is frequently proficient by opening ligand-gated K+ directs in the postsynaptic layer, which enables K+ particles to leave the cell. 
Despite whether they are excitatory or inhibitory, all postsynaptic possibilities are reviewed, implying that their sizes are variable. (Activity possibilities, then again, are all-or-none occasions.) And on the grounds that a postsynaptic potential is not proliferated like an activity potential, its greatness diminishes with separation from the neurotransmitter along the cell body.

In a paragraph address these following questions: • How does an underwater earthquake cause a tsunami? • Why do some earthquakes cause more damage than others? the paragraph needs to also include the following things: • discuss how the different types of waves are formed and describe how the waves travel • explain how scientists use waves to track and analyze earthquakes • cover recent events involving earthquakes and/or tsunamis that illustrate the points made in your explanation

What is an Earthquake

Earthquakes are vibrations in the earth's crust They occur along all plate boundaries but are more destructive usually at destructive plate boundaries

How are they measured

The magnitude or size of an earthquake can be measured by an instrument called a seisometer and are shown on a seismograph. The earthquakes are measured on the Richter scale from a value of 1 to 10. Each level of magnitude is 10 times more powerful than the previous. Therefore a level 7 is 100 time more powerful than a level 5.

Why do some earthquakes cause more damage than others?

Some earthquakes take place in rural areas where few people live and little is damaged

If they occur near large urban areas with many people, transport services, large buildings and services such as gas and electricity - there can be a great amount of deaths and damage

In Poor countries - LEDC's they have poorly built buildings, few emergency facilities, and the equipment to help rescue people - a good term to use is that they have a poor infrastructure.

In rich countries - MEDC's such as the USA they prepare for an earthquake with drills and have a great deal of trained emergency personnel and equipment to go to help the injured. They also try to build to withstand earthquake damage - ie The Transamerica building

The time of day can be important - If the earthquake hits when it is the rush hour or when there is a large number of people located in a certain area - this can cause a great loss of life

Obviously if they occur near to coasts then Tsunamis can cause a great deal of damage and deaths such as the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami

Which of the following are not characteristics of the cell wall? Select all that apply. cellulose and chitin hydrophillic and hydrophobic structures found in cells of fungi and algae double-layered membrane

Answer: hydrophobic and hydrophilic structures found in cells of fungi and algea

double-layered membrane

A cell wall is a a semi-permeable protective layer found in some cell types. This covers the cell membrane in plants cells, fungi, bacteria. Animal cells do not possess cell wall. The cell wall performs functions like protection, provides structural stability to a cell and support. Cell wall composition varies depending upon the type of organism. In plants the cell wall is made up of fibers of carbohydrate polymer called as cellulose. In bacteria cell walls are made up of peptidoglycan. In fungi cell wall is made up of chitin. Hydrophillic and hydrophobic structures found in cells of fungi and algae and double- layered membrane are features of cell membrane not of cell wall.

You farm kelp and sell the kelp for food and as fertilizer. The wastes from the kelp can be used in an integrated aquaculture system in which kelp farming can be coupled with farming of fish or abalone. Make an argument that you are using a sustainable system of growing a renewable resource, and explain why it is beneficial (and more sustainable) to couple algae farming with fish farming than simply to farm fish independently.

A sustainable system refers to producing less or probably non-existent debris that are caused by the production of a particular material (i.e. produce, energy). This is a sustainable form of production of coupling algae growth and fish farming because you no longer need the supply of fish feed from other sources that are made artificially but rather, you are using the available algae growth that you are culturing. Farm fishing alone is non-renewable because this produces much waste that can directly harm the environment.

Pumping carbon dioxide directly into the deepest zones of the ocean has been proposed as a strategy to mitigate climate change. Do you feel this would be an effective method for protecting the environment? Explain your answer, including one pro and one con, and whether this would be a permanent solution.

Pro: Pumping carbon dioxide directly in to the deepest zones of the oceans can have a great deal in lessening the greenhouse gases that are produced within the Earth's atmosphere. 

Con: Some organisms are tolerant to such practice, but some experiments have yielded that some organisms are not and can die from such exposure to too much carbon dioxide mixing with other chemicals that are found underwater. 

Permanent Solution: Greenhouse gases can be minimized if there will be regulations regarding the production of goods in factories, mines, and agriculture. If these things are regulated, the release of such bad gases will be lessened and nothing underwater will be harmed.

Sickle-cell disease is a genetic disorder that causes many red blood cells to become sickle shaped. As shown in the diagram, sickle-shaped cells can clog blood vessels and impede blood flow. What does the effect of sickle-shaped cells on blood flow imply about the shape of normal red blood cells?


The answer is :

Blood viscosity increases and results in decreased blood flow throughout the body.


Blood flow is directly proportional to pressure and indirectly proportional to resistance.

Sickle-shaped blood cells tend to accumulate and increase the blood viscosity, which increases resistance. Therefore, blood viscosity increases and results in decreased blood flow throughout the body.
